Subject: AC and sweatbox Stroudsburg set the high bar for the band
Nothing you can say but smile smile smile as the band came out rockin' right away with a souped up "Passenger" then laid back for Bobby and the Blue Lights and then REALLY ROCKED out "Hell in a Bucket" as Bob goes nuts in the flourising finish. It goes uphill from there a thoroughly fantastic show-- ten stars outta five......

WOW what a great show!
i am a 5o year old kid waiting for this show to happen and it sure didn't dissapoint in any way!
i don't get excited about much but this was it!
if you like music as much as i do, please do yourself a favor and enjoy this new music!
this is not the grateful dead but an adaptation of some old classical pieces by highly skilled masters.
please remember JERRY but enjoy FURTHUR for all the great music they are playing!! peace!!

Subject: Great show!
I'm so glad I got a chance to catch these guys on this tour. I now live in Texas, but happened to be back on the east coast for this A.C show and was blown away! Every song has so much energy and so much emotion, not to even mention the setlist.

The highlights for me were the crazy fingers and sugaree in the first set, and then the wheel>dark star> stella blue was something special for sure! Lost Sailor> Saint is quickly becoming one of my new favorite dead songs thanks to this band, however I don't think this version lives up to the rest that they've played. There are a few parts that are off, and the song comes off overall good, but definitely was missing a little something.

All in all great band, great show, and they're just going to get better and better! Do not miss this band

Subject: just don't know If I'm goin' back again !!!!!!!!
I gotta say two things. One is that this show made me actually set up an archive account (long time DL/Streamer, but lazy deadhead...)

and the other is that THAT WAS BY FAR THE BEST CUMBERLAND BLUES I HAVE EVER HEARD seriously-- I thought; 'wow is this the best Cumberland Blues I ever heard??' by 4:45, but then by the second jam i thought, yes indeed, sorry to say it but better than i ever heard live 85-95 and maybe dare i blaspheme, Chimenti is takin' it *furthur* than Keith 09/27/72 (ok still has a really soft spot in my ears for teh 06/30/73)

Sugaree just peaked, (second time-- around 11:00) nice!!! what playing. Looking forward to 2nd set!!!! killer show. Ice Cold super-kind recording (thank you Frank D'Auria!!!) LOVE CUMBERLAND BLUES. LOVE THE GRATEFUL DEAD LOVE FURTHUR LOVE THE DEAD LOVE PHIL AND FRIENDS LOVE BK3 AND O SO GRATEFUL IT'S STILL GOING STRONG!!

I am thrilled that furthur is as amazing as they are. I am blown away at this show.
Lost Sailor--->SOC, and The Wheel are highlights of this one.

Subject: Sugaree
Bobby should not sing this song with John on the stage..... I love Bobby,but listen to the Stella and tell me I'm wrong..... I'm not here to hate and the shows that I went to at RCMH were amazing.... I got my Mann Music Center tics today and my Brooklyn Tickets on the way! Great stuff and thanx again for all the tapers!

Subject: Summer tour in Presale
Hey. Did everyone catch that East coast summer tour dates are currently in presale? Caught me off gaurd. I just happened to be browsing ticketmaster and saw Furthur at Penns Peak. Went on and found that other dated for the northeast have been announced. Among them is The Mann Center which I am really looking forward to. I passed on this AC show due to the cost of rooms and the way security was acting when Ratdog was here last, but it sounds really good. On another note, don't discount DSO cause John's gone. Jeff Mattson kicks butt and he can go back into Pigpen era really well.

Uhh... that's a pretty good Dark Star...

Subject: No need to pretend anymore!
All I could think all night long was "THEY ARE BACK!" Thank you so much to Bob and Phil for sticking to it and taking it Furthur. I know everyone has their own personal experiences and opinions of each show, but for me this was the first time in over 15 years that it was just like it used to be, and for that I am most GRATEFUL!

I just want to add a few comments of my own...

The first set was solid, I was pleasantly surprised by the Next Time and King Bee and the Crazy Fingers was killer...

The second set was the stuff you talk about for weeks on end. The Sailor>Saint was spectacular (It's always been my favorite when done well and this was done better than well) and was followed by a China>Rider that was just as good as any that I saw in the '80s (Really... it was that good!) The Wheel??? WOW... I've been hearing it teased since '97 with no payoff. It was worth the wait. The harmonies were better than good and there was an energy that made me feel like they meant it. What's going on now... What is that riff??? Where are we going??? What is that star on the screen for??? Dark Star!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here's the thing... I've heard a lot of Dark Stars going back to Hampton in '89 and then the amazing 10/16/89 just a few days later... Those were mind blowing. Then there were the rest. It was always worth hearing, but never really made you blast off like those first two. This one was on that higher level. The interplay was glorious. There was so much musical talk between everyone on the stage and they really told you something. They took it somewhere and didn't force it to take any preconceived shape. It was organic and it was beautiful. It expanded and became something unbelievably funky for the second verse. (I really don't want to sound cliche, but...) It was like they were trying to take The Wheel to heart. "A little bit Furthur than we've gone before" The magic that made us all keep going back to see The Grateful Dead was pulling the strings and playing the band again. And then into Stella Blue... I cried. That's all. And when John played the solo... I smiled. Hard. It was brilliant. It was as emotional as I've ever heard it.

This was the greatest Unbroken Chain ever played. Period... Listen to it loud and enjoy!

Of course it WAS Saturday night...

And then they blow the roof off with Gloria?

I thought it was on fire when they did it in December at Asbury Park, but this took it even higher... I think a Lovelight would have been better but who am I to question ;)

Anyhow... This band is fantastic. This night of music was STELLAR. Thank you boys (and girls) Thank you very much. That is all.

Subject: China Cat
Great night: especially Cumberland Blues - and the whole freakin second set. The sound at the Etess Arena: occasionally the keyboards were mixed too high, and for the entire night the drums were mixed way too low.

Furthur in AC: cool setlist, great playin, good times.
Reviewer: ChinaRider022474 - - March 1, 2010
Subject: March winds will blow all my troubles away
This is a China>Rider worthy of the legend. Now pleeeeeze boys, stick the "feeling groovy" jam back in between (dig China>Rider 02-24-74 for bliss). This isn't the Grateful Dead kids, but it's as close as you're gonna get. John K. spent a good part of his life emulating Garcia's style, sound, and tone, while at the same time developing amazing improv skills of his own. Bobby and Phil spent a good part of their lives playing off and augmenting Garcia's notes in the flesh. Put 'em together and toss in a rhythm team that could really drive the band (ala Kreutzmann '71 - '74), and you've got something really, really special.

The music is being represented and played as much of us know and love it, the Good Ol' GD way.

The interplay of these musicians and the joy I'm hearing in their "dialogue" is unbelieveable. It hasn't sounded like this in a long, long time, and many of you know it.

All Good festival. The Mountain scored the Crown Jewel of the Summer,

And by the way, Jeff Chimenti is God.

First time seeing these guys. 4 Bob songs to open nice King Bee. But the Dark Star in the second set that was wierd, up beat and I swear it was going into Dancin. Sound is solid, good show thanks for puting up so quick

Subject: WOW WOW WOW!!!!

these guys are taking the jams into uncharted territory and i'm loving it!! this show proved to me that JK really does have evenings and songs of his own.

-pretty cool venue
-loose security
-great after-party with "Steal Your Face" non-stop jams til what like 3:30am!!

thanks to the tapers as always -
nothing like reliving Saturday night's show to help ease me back into the real world.

love for everyone involved.
